Crawling out of the NYC underground music scene comes Sonic Youth’s first full-length album Confusion is Sex. The band wears their early influences of the avant-garde and No Wave scene proudly, making a record as abrasive as it is challenging. Melody can be heard darting in and out of songs, hiding behind layers of feedback, wailing guitars and sparse tribal drumming. The Songwriting does it’s best to avoid convention and the atonal, low-fi sound fits the time and place of this recording perfectly, serving as a pleasing portrait of the beginnings of the future alternative icons.
